RF/Microwave Components Add USB Control
Pasternack Enterprises Inc.

Pasternack unveils its latest lines of USB controlled microwave and millimeter wave components that include amplifiers, attenuators, and PIN diode switches. The components are controlled and powered via a USB 2.0 port with driverless installation. The attenuators and PIN diode switches require an easy-to-use downloadable software program that interfaces with any Windows computer. Two models each of the amplifiers, switches, and attenuators are available that cover frequency bands up to 40 GHz. The modules are 50Ω hybrid MIC designs that do not require any external matching components. The amplifiers offer a typical performance of 12 dB gain, 10 dBm P1dB, a 4.5 dB noise figure, and operate over a 50 MHz to 18 GHz band or 50 MHz to 40 GHz band. The attenuators offer typical performance of 30 dB attenuation, 5 to 8 dB of insertion loss, a 1-dB step size, and are available in two programmable models that cover 100 MHz to 18 GHz and 100 MHz to 40 GHz. Additionally, the SPDT switches offer typical performance 3 to 5 dB of insertion loss, 65 to 70 dB isolation, a 6-µs switching speed, and are available in two models that cover 500 MHz to 18 GHz and 500 MHz to 40 GHz. All models operate over a temperature range from -40°C to +85°C and depending on the frequency, are available with either female SMA or 2.92-mm connectors.
